Capitol Hill Catfight Continues: Conservatives Cosign Jasmine Crockett's Clapback At Marjorie Taylor

Source: Tom Williams/Kent Nishimura / Getty

GOP Colleagues Secretly Applaud Crockett's Response to Marjorie Taylor Greene's Outburst
This drama-filled week of government clap-backs has led to several GOP lawmakers showing their support for Texas Democrat, Rep. Jasmine Crockett. This Republican reversal follows her fiery confrontation with a certain "Bleach Blonde Bad Built Butch Body," Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.

According to an interview on MSNBC's The ReidOut, Crockett received "thumbs up," winks, and even some compliments from across the aisle, revealing a surprising rift within the GOP ranks.

A Fiery Exchange
The drama unfolded during a House Oversight Committee hearing when Greene made a contentious remark about Crockett's "fake eyelashes." She also used the inappropriate jab to question Crockett's ability read.

As BOSSIP reports, Crockett did not hold back. Crockett later describes her experience working with Greene as "completely unproductive" in an interview with MSNBC's Joy Reid.

"Listen, she is showing the world who she is, and the fact that the Republicans continue to give her cover tells us who they are as well," Crockett stated.

NPR notes that, during the hearing, Crockett was repeatedly told by Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla., to "calm down," and was told she was "out of control."

white woman antagonizes black woman. black woman responds as is her right. white woman accuses/implies black woman is loud, angry, aggressive, and is the aggressor in the entire situation. it is a tale as old as time.

Crockett's Backroom Support From GOP Colleagues
Crockett goes on to tell Reid that the tides have turned. But that didn't stop her from calling her colleagues out to take accountability. As many learned in school, bystanders are just as much a problem as the bully.

"Now, they want to disassociate themselves from her, but in reality, when you don't check her, you basically are complicit in the things that she does," Crockett said.

Despite the public discord, Crockett revealed to Joy Reid that several Republicans privately supported her stance.

"I've had thumbs up, winks, and comments from the other side. Some of them said, 'I like your lashes,'" Crockett shared, highlighting the lack of defense for Greene from her party members. "And they're all patting me on my back."

The incident led to a debate on whether to strike Greene's remark from the record. Crockett used this opportunity to question the fairness of congressional rhetoric rules with her now-classic clapback.

Turning Controversy Into Advocacy
Following the hearing, Crockett kept up the controversy by trademarking "B6" and using it to fundraise with merchandise.

Well y'all the wait is over! Our first design of many to come. @theclapbackco is going to feature wearable political sayings & maybe my face ??.

The proceeds will go towards my campaign to help OUR Democracy.

In response, Greene posted a workout video online, defending her physique. "Yes, my body is built and strong NOT with nips, tucks, plastic, or silicone, but through a healthy lifestyle," Greene wrote on the social media platform X.

Yes my body is built and strong ?? NOT with nips, tucks, plastic, or silicone, but through a healthy lifestyle.

Viral Moment Sparks Public Engagement
Crockett's bold stand not only earned her quiet conservative cosigns but also sparked widespread conversation on social media. The viral moment continues to inspire praise for Crockett's fearlessness and disgust at Greene's behavior.

By leveraging her platform to highlight internal issues within the government, Crockett draws in those who may usually avoid these critical conversations.

The INTERNET is UNdefeated! This thread is so that all the B6 songs can be consolidated into one space! Someone just sent me the first country song! I must admit I've had a number of Bops stuck in my head. Drop your fav ????. https://t.co/hTXYm2g0fI

— Jasmine Crockett (@JasmineForUS) May 18, 2024

This kind of outreach is crucial in an era marked by political apathy. It reminds us that acts of integrity and courage can indeed inspire change and participation. This is even more true when social media moments spark movements. In the case of Crockett's clapback, it became another battle against racism, bullying and gender inequality.

The Bad-Built Karen Won't Quit
Will Rep. Greene just take her L? She continues to amplify the disgusting behavior and racist commentary that not only affects Rep. Crockett, but any woman that partakes in beauty practices.

Afterall all, she definitely started this catfight! Don't dish it if you can't take it. Didn't we all learn about how ugly it is to be a sore loser? What's that saying? If you can't take the heat, STAY OUT THE KITCHEN.

Let's Hope for Better Gov't Conversations To Bring Change
Rep. Jasmine Crockett's response to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene exposed significant dysfunction in Congress. It also shows how little leaders really stand on business in these halls of power. If Greene didn't get dragged for harassing Crockett, misogynoir would quietly continue as an unspoken rule like it always has.

Crockett's advocacy warrants support as voters grow more vigilant about who represents our communities ahead of the general election. We don't need any more racists in the house...

Tamar Braxton Speaks Out About Rejecting #RHOA Offer To 'Argue With A Bunch Of B***hes' As A Cast Me

Tamar Braxton, who is no stranger to reality TV, recently spoke about an offer she received to join the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Braxton candidly stated that she was not interested in the opportunity because "all money ain't good money."

The mother of one recently joined Carlos King on his podcast, Reality with the King. When asked about the opportunity to join the cast of Bravo's hit show, Braxton revealed why she rejected the RHOA offer. She was adamant that being on the show was not in her best interest.

"It's just no way I'm going to sit and get a wig put on and get my face beat to argue with a bunch of b***hes about nothing. I can't do it. What does that do for me in my life? What's the argument?" she stated on the live recording.

Furthering her stance, Braxton added "What's for me won't miss me. It's not worth my mental to sit up here and get into an argument with another Black beautiful women about nothing so 'other people' can think this is what we're about."

Braxton explained rejecting the RHOA offer, but she is not completely against being on reality TV again. Instead, the mother of one is focused on projects that are "feel good, funny, relatable, epic."

However, Braxton did state she is a fan of the show, but she is concerned for the show as they only have Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore and seasoned cast members.

#LHHATL Star Sierra Gates Gets Engaged, Third Time Putting A Ring On It In Three Years

Sierra Gates is putting the "love" in Love & Hip Hop after she recently announced her engagement to Xzavia Thomas. This marks Gates's third engagement in the last three years. Fans are wondering if this time it will last.

Source: Marcus Ingram / Getty

If Sierra Gates knows how to do anything, she knows how to get a ring! On May 25, 2024, Gates took to Instagram with a lengthy caption expressing her appreciation for her man, Thomas.

In the reel, Thomas could be seen on one knee slipping a diamond ring onto Gates's ring finger. In the caption, she stated that she had known Thomas for over 15 years but that had always avoided dating him because of others' perceptions of him.

A post shared by Sierra Glamshop (@sierra_glamshop_)

However, during their friendship, Gates has vowed to marry two other men. In December 2020, BOSSIP reported Gates got engaged to BK Brasco. By Febrauary 2021, reports stated that she and BK ended their relationship just days after becoming engaged. According to TheShadeRoom, BK had his child's mother present at the proposal, which made Gates uncomfortable because they didn't have the best relationship.

A post shared by PRIAM (@profitent)

Shortly after ending that relationship, Gates began spending time with Eric Whitehead. Gates got engaged to Whitehead on Christmas in 2021, just a year after accepting BK's proposal. During an Instagram Live with Renni Rucci, Gates explained she and Whitehead were never meant to be and she knew that before getting engaged. The couple reportedly split in March 2023.

Is unclear when Gates and Thomas began dating. However, Gates first appeared on Thomas's Instagram in October 2023. The reality TV star hard launched Thomas on her Instagram in December 2023.

Social Media Reacts to Sierra Gates' Third Engagement
While viewers and fans are happy for Gates, they wonder if this engagement will actually last.

I seen on Insta where Sierra Gates got engaged AGAIN yesterday lol. I love my girl but ATP why you keep getting all these rings and not keeping the man ????

— Growing Era ? (@JassiGeeGee) May 26, 2024

Others are not quite impressed with the third engagement as it is seemingly something Gates does often.

"Sierra Gates is engaged!"
"Keke Wyatt is pregnant!"
"Drake has a new song with Sexyy Red!"

Everyone: pic.twitter.com/6T54ZWOZ9A

— Ororo Munroe ?? (@Tashiee_J) May 25, 2024

Some social media users acknowledge Gates's ability to get a proposal and attribute it to something she may be doing right. However, others feel like she may rush into relationships.

Nevertheless, Gates and Thomas are seemingly happy as she stated she wished she had said yes to him a long time ago. As mentioned, the couple has been friend for 15 years. The mother of two rejected his advances many times, but Thomas remained persistent, ultimately winning a date with her in 2023.

We wish the happy couple all the best!

On Saturday, Richardson clinched the women's 100-meter dash in 10.83 seconds at the Prefontaine Classic, USA Today reports.

"I'm excited, I'm eager going into the rest of this season, I'm growing, developing and just getting ready to make that USA Team," she said after her victory.

In her triumph, the fastest woman in the world bested Saint Lucia's Julien Alfred, Great Britain's Dina Asher-Smith as well as defending gold medalist Elaine Thompson-Herah of Jamaica, who came in last place.

Richardson has returned to the track world and has yet to be anything less than excellent. Many expect her to breeze through Olympic trials next month to continue her dominance ahead of the Paris games. In terms of her personal growth, the track icon says she's "continuing to grow & develop into a mature young lady, a mature athlete."

A post shared by WHOOP (@whoop)

Richardson has seemed to lock in since disappearing from the spotlight back in 2021. Her return in 2023 for the World Championship was punctuated by winning two gold medals and one bronze. She leveled up her legendary status by setting the world record in the 100m.

"I've created my own type of environment where I'm locked in on a day to day," she says about her renewed outlook. "With my family and my friends, I'm in this bubble and I don't have to worry about the outside stuff getting in. It's easy to maintain that motivation and focus."

When the world's fastest woman takes to the blocks, she always blows a kiss to the sky before the gun sounds. This, she says, is her way of honoring "the belief that I have to have in myself first and the blessing I know I've been given to give back in the world, to be that vessel, to shine, to allow his glory and His love to reign through me."

Now, that's a word!

The "About Damn Time" singer's response to a new episode of South Park, titled "The End of Obesity", drew support from her fans. The scene in question shows the character Eric Cartman trying to get Ozempic for weight loss before being told he must try the drug "Lizzo" instead.

"I'm going to write you a prescription for Lizzo. She's a really good singer who talks about body positivity and just being happy with the way you look. I want you to listen to Lizzo five times a day and watch her videos just before bedtime. I'm afraid you'll have to be on Lizzo for the rest of your life," the doctor advises.

In response to the clip, Lizzo uploaded a video proclaiming,

"I just feel like damn. I'm really that b**ch. I really showed the world how to love yourself and not give a f*** so much so that these men in Colorado know who the f*** I am and put me on their cartoon that's been around for 25 years."

She continued,

"I'm really that b**ch and I showed y'all how to not give a f*** and I'm gone keep on showing y'all how to not give a f***."

Lizzo's fans commended her ability to see the positive in the episode while others called the comment backhanded and disrespectful.

"I was so hoping you weren't going to be offended but see this as a win and you didn't disappoint me."

Marilyn Mosby Dodges Prison: Judge Orders Home Confinement
Race & Justice: Marilyn Mosby Interview

Source: Jerod Harris / Getty

From Prosecution to Probation: Marilyn Mosby's Legal Twist
In a dramatic turn of events, a federal judge has sentenced Marilyn Mosby, former Baltimore State's Attorney, to time served and 12 months of home confinement.

This sentence, which also includes three years of supervised release and 100 hours of community service, marks a significant deviation from the 20-month prison term originally sought by federal prosecutors.
Convictions and Consequences
According to CNN, Mosby was convicted in two separate trials. The first conviction, in November, was for perjury related to claims of adverse financial consequences from the COVID-19 pandemic, which she used to withdraw $90,000 in retirement funds.

Despite earning a gross salary of $247,955.58 at the time, Mosby falsely claimed financial hardship. In February, Mosby was found guilty of making a false mortgage application to purchase a Florida condo.

Prosecutors demonstrated that she falsely claimed she received a $5,000 gift from her husband to secure a lower interest rate. Instead, they had the funds transferred back and forth between Mosby and her husband.

Additional Penalties and Public Reaction

Source: Larry French / Getty

In addition to her sentence, the court ordered Mosby forfeit 90% of her interests in the Longboat Key, Florida condo linked to her mortgage fraud conviction. The government has authorization to seize the property, with Mosby potentially receiving up to $47,600 plus 10% of the home's appreciation value once sold.

CNN reports that Mosby left court with her two daughters, a group of supporters,  and civil rights attorney Ben Crump.

As they left, chants of "Justice for Marilyn" echoed, highlighting the community's support.

Expressing her gratitude, Mosby told the crowd, "This is not over. But God was here today and I know he's with me, he touched the heart of this judge and has allowed me to go home to my babies."

The US Attorney's Office for the District of Maryland issued a statement post-sentencing, stating, "As always, we respect the judgment of the court."
Backstory: Mosby's Murky Legal Waters
As BOSSIP previously reports, Marilyn Mosby served as the State's Attorney for Baltimore from 2015 to 2023. Known for charging six police officers for the 2015 death of Freddie Gray, Mosby recently faced intense legal scrutiny. Mosby has been at the center of a contentious legal battle, which includes indictments for mortgage fraud and perjury.

Additional coverage shows that the government had initially recommended a 20-month prison sentence, but Mosby's legal team fought for probation instead of incarceration.

Mosby has claimed that her prosecution is politically motivated, stemming from her efforts to hold law enforcement accountable.
 NAACP's Bold Move
On May 7, the NAACP made a controversial move by writing to President Joe Biden requesting a pardon for Mosby. The letter, signed by 14 civil rights organizations, highlighted the perceived injustices faced by Black Americans in the legal system.

NAACP President Derrick Johnson stated, "We've watched, decade after decade, as Black Americans have faced wrongful prosecution at the hands of those who seek to promote injustice. The only thing Marilyn Mosby is guilty of is the desire to provide her family with a better life."

Johnson continued, emphasizing the broader implications of Mosby's case: "As Black women take their rightful places in positions of power, dark forces seek to tear down both their progress, and that of our community. The NAACP refuses to stand idly by as injustice takes the wheel. We are proud to stand alongside our partners in calling on President Biden and the Department of Justice to reemphasize their commitment to racial equity by pardoning Attorney Mosby. Enough is enough. It's time to stand with Black women."

Marilyn Mosby Moving Forward
Mosby can now return home to her family. What a turn of events for a prosecutor once at the forefront of a high-profile legal battle! Her legal team and supporters continue to argue that her prosecution was politically motivated.

This case is still developing. BOSSIP remains steadfast to providing updates. Mosby's story remains an example of challenges faced by Black women in positions of power within the complex American legal system.

Chaos At Cannes: Tyga, Travis Scott & Cher's Cougar Cub Alexander 'AE' Edwards Engage In 'Sicko Mode
Yung Miami Hosts Opium MLK Sunday

Tyga, Travis Scott, and Cher's boyfriend Alexander "AE" Edwards are the latest stars to have a rather interesting run-in at the Cannes Film Festival.

Source: Mike Marsland/WireImage/ Ethan Miller/Swan Gallet/WWD via Getty Images / Getty

According to TMZ, the alleged scuffle happened when Travis was introduced on the mic alongside fellow rapper and Kylie Jenner's ex, Tyga. The event's promoter, Richie Akiva, committed the faux pas, and AE, who has a close friendship with Tyga, reportedly entered the chat.

The outlet reports that Travis approached Tyga's security and had words before leaving, only to return with Yung Miami's baby daddy Southside.

When Travis and Southside returned to the scene, things reportedly took a turn.

A brawl broke out at a #Cannes afterparty between #TravisScott and #Tyga's camps ... and #Cher's boyfriend got involved! ?? Find out why HERE: https://t.co/ZGrJwLiFAA pic.twitter.com/7O3pAUmyCq

— TMZ (@TMZ) May 24, 2024

TheShadeRoom also reported on the brawl and said it began when Richie Akiva specifically said, 'We got Traww and A.E. and Travis Scott here make some noise!', much to Travis Scott's dismay.

After "snatching the mic" and "slamming it on the floor", Soctt reportedly stormed off and returned with Southside who threw hands with Alexander Edwards, which "led to Scott intervening."

It soon became a "one-on-one fight" between Scott and Edwards, before security reportedly broke them up and Travis Scott and Southside left the party. Edwards and Tyga are said to have remained at the party until the wee hours of the morning.

If you're not caught up on what may be the source of the underlying drama between Tyga and Travis; the former dated the latter's baby mama, Kylie Jenner, when she was a wee teenager. Though there didn't seem to be any lasting bad blood between Tyga and Kylie, perhaps the same cannot be said about the men in the situation.

Simon Guobadia Demands Judge Reconsider Prenup Agreement Due To Porsha Williams' Big Bravo Paycheck,

Source: Paras Griffin / Getty

The messy divorce proceedings between RHOA's Porsha Williams and her former husband Simon Guobadia continue and things are getting [even] messier amid the businessman seemingly labeling his ex a "pig in lipstick."

Amid the news that Williams will be returning for another season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, RadarOnline reports Guobadia has asked a judge to consider throwing out the couple's prenup agreement. The request comes after the TV starlet filed a subpoena against her estranged husband's demands to review her finances.

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Dr. Simon Iyore Guobadia (@iamsimonguobadia)

Williams reportedly believes that her financial standings hold no significance when it comes to honoring the terms of their prenuptial agreement. Guobadia vehemently disagrees.

"Wife's financial status and whether her current financial status of earning multi-millions just a little over 12 months into the parties' marriage would make enforcement of the prenuptial agreement fair," reads his filing obtained by RadarOnline. "The only way for this Court to comply with its duties under the law in determining the enforceability of the prenuptial agreement is to explore the finances, income, and financial status of the Wife."

Radar adds that Simon notes that the agreement, signed ahead of their November 2022 wedding, was made before her latest multimillion-dollar deal with True Entertainment and Bravo. He says that the "request for relief alone puts the Wife's income and financial status at issue because in order for the Court to determine the enforceability of the prenuptial agreement, the Court must evaluate the Wife's financial circumstances."

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Porsha Williams (@porsha4real)

The full extent of Simon's argument seems to be that Porsha's money is up and she would no longer need what they agreed to when she was no longer a member of the #RHOA cast.

"The Wife publicly announced her return to the Real Housewives of Atlanta just a few days prior to her filing of this divorce action. The Wife also publicly announced that she has entered into an overall scripted talent deal with NBC Universal Entertainment. It is apparent that Wife's financial status and income has changed since the prenuptial agreement was executed in November 2022," his filing also reads per Radar.

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Dr. Simon Iyore Guobadia (@iamsimonguobadia)

It does not seem like these two are working towards even an inkling of being amicable.

Most recently, Simon sent shade about someone being a "pig in lipstick" which many fans think is aimed at Porsha.

"'Debt" Builds Wealth... Poor Credit Destroys Wealth... Which Would Your [SIC] Rather Have," reads a meme he shared on Instagram. "A pig with lipstick does not make one beautiful because when the lipstick fades, all you see is what it always was....a pig [pig emoji," he captioned the post using the "lipstick on a pig" saying. "#Teachablemoments #knowledgeispower #ignoranceisnotbliss."

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Dr. Simon Iyore Guobadia (@iamsimonguobadia)

Porsha caught wind of the post and clapped back saying;

"Valid green card or debt free?! Simon [heart emoji]," harping on the Nigerian's alleged citizenship issues.

No Barb Behind Bars: Nicki Minaj Reportedly Released From Amsterdam Police Custody After Live-Stream
The 2024 Met Gala Celebrating "Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion" - Arrivals

Nicki Minaj's Instagram made headlines again as the rapper live-streamed Amsterdam police attempting to arrest her for "carrying drugs."

Roman, take the wheel! Gag City residents are rallying behind their queen after she filmed a run-in with foreign cops. On Saturday afternoon, Nicki started the video, which lasted more than three minutes, on a tour bus explaining the ordeal.

— lanii ?? (@pinkfridaywrld) May 25, 2024

"They just said I have to get in this van and go to the precinct with them with no lawyer present. To make a statement with no lawyer present," she said to her Babrz.

Nicki said they wanted to question her about "pre-rolls they found from bags that they were not authorized to take." Although she says they explained that the pre-rolls belonged to her security, she says they still insisted on taking her into custody for questioning.

When the "Big Foot" rapper questioned the cops about what was happening, they were heard saying that she was "under arrest." An official explained that they are taking her down to the police station because she was "carrying drugs."

On the Live, Nicki immediately proclaimed her innocence and insisted that she needed her lawyer present before she agreed to leave.

"You have to go to the police station," said the officers back before they request that she stop filming and leave with them so she can return for her concert as soon as possible.

According to USA Today, the Amsterdam Police responded to a request for comment, stating:

"We cannot provide information on persons older than 18 years. This is because of the data privacy law. Therefore, we cannot confirm anything."

TMZ reports Royal Netherlands Marechaussee military police confirmed that they did arrest an American woman for possession of "soft drugs," like the marijuana pre-rolls Nicki described.

The authorities refused to identify the woman by name. On Saturday afternoon, TMZ confirmed that Amsterdam police released a 41-year-old American woman, confirmed to be Nicki, from custody.

It appears that Nicki is once again walking free. However, her posts leading up to the incident claim it's bigger than a few pre-rolls.

Nicki Minaj Blames "Sabotage" & Conspiracies Against Recently Extended Pink Friday 2 World Tour For Amsterdam Airport Issues Before Drug Arrest
Source: Gotham / Getty

Before Minaj's apparent arrest, she accused Schiphol Airport security of attempting to "sabotage" her world tour. She took to X with a series of tweets about their questionable behavior.

In another video, a man identified as the pilot explained why they had to "search everything" in her luggage. The reasoning went from a "random check" to saying she raised suspicions because she was filming.


— Nicki Minaj (@NICKIMINAJ) May 25, 2024

Nicki later shared that filming was part of her strategy because she predicted something was up.

They didn't know I was planning for them just like they were planning for me. Me filming every single thing made them really mad.

— Nicki Minaj (@NICKIMINAJ) May 25, 2024

She seemingly co-signed a fan who observed that "they wanted to search her s**t from the jump" and "it wasn't random at all."

They took my luggage & when I asked where it is they said it's on the plane. It couldn't have been, I just pulled up. https://t.co/blGwcweViK

— Nicki Minaj (@NICKIMINAJ) May 25, 2024

I never gave them my bags. They're refusing to let me see my own bags.

— Nicki Minaj (@NICKIMINAJ) May 25, 2024

"They took my luggage & when I asked where it is they said it's on the plane. It couldn't have been, I just pulled up," Nicki added. "I never gave them my bags. They're refusing to let me see my own bags."

Nicki speculated that this is part of a conspiracy because the ordeal came on the heels of her announcing another leg of the Pink Friday 2 World Tour yesterday.

They're being paid big money to try to sabotage my tour b/c soooooo many ppl are mad that it's this successful & they can't eat off me. They got caught stealing money from my travel/jets. Got fired. Got mad. Etc.

This is how they plant things in your luggage

They try to make me book another jet every time. All b/c I fired mngmnt who I found out for years were adding on 30-50K on my jet & pocketing it. I fired a tour mngr recently who was doing the same thing & mad he got the boot. Their goal is to make me late, & to pocket 40K

still in my car. They took my luggage w/o consent. Lied & said it was on the jet.

The "Red Ruby" royalty emphasized that all this drama took place in "Amsterdam btw, where weed is legal." Adding, "They took my luggage w/o consent. Lied & said it was on the jet."

Whew, it's a mess!

Once they searched her bags, it got more serious due to the pre-rolls she said belonged to her security.

?? now they said they found weed & that another group of ppl have to come here to weigh the pre-rolls. Keep in mind they took my bags without consent. My security has already advised them those pre-rolls belong to him. Oh yea & the pilot wants me to take my ig post down.

— Nicki Minaj (@NICKIMINAJ) May 25, 2024

And the ppl who weigh it ain't here ???? told you, it's to try to make me late so that they can write negative stories. Jealousy is a disease. You know the rest. https://t.co/E4wbQZWVDD

That was the pilot in the gray suit smiling from ear to ear chi. Now ask yourself why would that be his role? And why the plane was nowhere to be found when I arrived. https://t.co/UoNEn535fR

Nicki's last update confirmed that she was going to the police precinct on Saturday morning. Fortunately, it sounds like she's back on the road (or in the air on another PJ) and coming back to Gag City very soon.

Her stop in Manchester however will have to be rescheduled.
